Dolphins owner Stephen Ross attended LSU-Alabama to scout his future quarterback
Miami Dolphins owner Stephen Ross was in Alabama this weekend to take a look at his potential future franchise quarterback.
On Saturday, LSU and Alabama met in the biggest game to date of this college football season. No. 1 LSU coming away with a 46-41 victory over No. 3 Alabama. The game featured the presumptive frontrunner for this year’s Heisman Trophy in Tigers quarterback Joe Burrow, and last year’s Heisman runner-up Tua Tagovailoa.
Miami entered Sunday with a 1-7 record and likely high draft pick on the way, making good on their plan to tank this season. Ross was one of many on hand at Bryant-Denny Stadium to see both quarterbacks firsthand, according to a report.

The Dolphins do have a former first-round pick on their roster at quarterback in Josh Rosen, but they’ve mostly been playing veteran Ryan Fitzpatrick instead as the two have alternated benchings.
Ross and the Dolphins are hoping either Tua or Burrow give them their first true franchise quarterback seemingly since Dan Marino retired.
